    I am using AKE BC618T Express card. Everything is fine except when the system wakes from sleep it is showing an error "Power surge on Hub Port"

    I have updated the driver but the problem still persists.

    Could some one help me?

    You bought an Express Card which has NEC/Renesas PD720202 inside. It's really sad because as I know there is no solution for this issue. I received two cards some time ago and had to send it back to the the seller. I wrote about this issue here .

    I have received this item today. I think, it is the best choice for notebooks which have a few USB ports by default (like my 12" HP EliteBook). It works well without any issues. I tested it on my external WD My Passport (WD7500KMVW inside), which heavily used by me every day.

    I decided to test my external HDD at home, using AKE BC618T (uPD720200 inside) on my HP 2530p. Result is below.

    To install a driver successfully you should know the model of chipset installed inside your adapter. Try to install this one .

    I bought the AKE eSATA/USB 3.0 Expresscard/54 and connected it with a Western Digital 2TB Caviar Green drive in a Vantec NST-330SU3-BK NexStar exclosure and I get 58MB/s write speeds. I think the write speed is 100MB/s when connected to the computer through sata.

    EDIT: For some reason I get completely different results using the Crystal Disk Mark tool vs. Explorer. Must be burst speed...
